Where can I find the gtk-3.0 HighContrast theme?

A while back the Gnome team decided to have this theme built into the system. Where can I download the theme file for it?

$ pacman -Qo /usr/share/themes/HighContrast
/usr/share/themes/HighContrast/ is owned by gnome-themes-extra 3.28-2

Since the theme is built in, it doesn't show the actual code. There is code there, but the smallest bit.

I would like the full code.

It's already installed.

% cat /usr/share/themes/HighContrast/gtk-3.0/gtk.css                                                               
/* HighContrast is now part of GTK+ 3, this file is no longer used */

As you can see, the theme isn't there but built into Gnome.

I would like the theme's config, so I can edit it.

The "pacman -Qi" output has an "URL" line. It leads you to the source, it's here for gnome-themes-extra:

@Ropid & @ondoho

The underlying problem here seems to be indeed that these files are just dummy files and not actually relevant anymore.

Since you found that file and that line you should have your answer now, no?

Why not just put your modifications into ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css (or possibly settings.ini)?

Thanks for the link. I'm trying to wrap my head around it. The file 'gtk.css' has the following:

@import url("resource:///org/gtk/libgtk/theme/HighContrast/HighContrast.css");

I'm not sure how to extract this.

I've been doing this, though it's quite like fixing a car blind.

Glad you were able to find it with some help.

You have to look at all the files in that folder.
They usually are compiled somehow; my guess is the shell script there does that.
You could start by looking at the HighContrast.scss file.
